What does YOUR district spend per child?

These figures are from the 2008-09 South Carolina General Appropriations Bill. Each district receives money from local, state and federal sources but these appropriations exclude local bond revenues.

The statewide average for 2008-09 is:

$4,867 state, $1,097 federal, and $5,516 local = $11,480 per pupil

According to the SC Budget and Control Board’s analysis, only 44 cents per allocated dollar will reach the classroom in the form of instructional spending.

The US Department of Education estimates that South Carolina’s per-pupil spending was $1,300 more than North Carolina’s in 2006, the most recent year with complete data.
